Imitating the style of a 15- to 20-year-old game is a risky bet these days, but Rocketcat Games nails it with MAGE GAUNTLET. From the artwork to the storyline to the levels, this feels like something that could have come from the mid-1990s -- and that's meant as a compliment.

There's plenty of action (almost too much), plenty of loot, and a nice selection of magic spells to choose from. The story (which is much longer than you'd expect) is deliberately silly, but quickly hooks you. It does sometimes feel like you're on a treadmill while playing, though. But played in short doses, this is an RPG that you'll find yourself returning to regularly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
